WHY CHOOSE AN ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY LENS?
Cataract surgery represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to optimize your vision for many years to come.
At The Eye Institute for Medicine & Surgery, our cataract surgeons provide a vast array of solutions to help people just like you to experience a better, clearer, and more natural range of vision, oftentimes without the need for prescription eyewear.
We start with learning about you and your lifestyle and vision preferences, and what you results you want from having cataract surgery. Next, our surgeon will perform a comprehensive medical eye examination to determine the state of health of the key structures of your eyes. Following your examination, the surgeon will review his findings and shares his thoughts on what he believes are the optimal choices for you, given the overall health of your eyes. Finally, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and receive the answers that will help you to make your best possible decisions regarding your cataract surgery.
EXTENDED RANGE, HIGH-TECHNOLOGY LENS IMPLANTS:
The Extended Range, High-Technology Lens Implants, including the AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Lens Implant, the AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Toric Lens Implant, Symfony Lens Implant, and the Symfony Toric Lens Implant, are designed to reduce the effects of presbyopia (the loss of reading and computer distance vision) by providing an enhanced range of vision with a reduced need for eyeglasses for most tasks.
Patients receiving these lens implants enjoy freedom from the need for eyeglasses for the vast majority of tasks.
Note: When engaging in reading for lengthy periods of time, reading glasses may be required.
Delivering an outstanding range of vision, the PanOptix® Lens is the latest advancement from the AcrySof® Family of Lenses—the most implanted cataract replacement lenses worldwide. The PanOptix® Lens enhances quality as well as range, so your vision will be as sharp and vivid as it is complete.
The recent FDA approval of the TECNIS® Symfony Intraocular Lens (IOL) is great news for people with cataracts and have trouble reading or focusing on close objects (presbyopia/far-sighted). The Symfony lens is the first extended range of vision IOL to correct presbyopia and improve vision in people with cataracts, as well as improving far, intermediate, and near vision, with the decreased need for glasses or contact lens after cataract surgery.
The Monofocal Toric Lens Implant is designed to help patients with astigmatism achieve their best possible distance vision following cataract surgery, with minimal need for distance eyeglass correction.
While many patients do not require distance correction with their toric lens implants, eyeglasses will frequently be necessary for reading and intermediate distance tasks after surgery.
The Basic Lens Implant is designed to help patients achieve their best vision following cataract surgery along with the use of corrective lenses for near, intermediate and distance vision.
Patients will frequently need an eyeglass prescription to achieve their best vision at distance, and bifocals or reading glasses for near vision tasks. Some patients who do not have astigmatism may only need glasses for reading and intermediate distance tasks after surgery.
*Not all of these lenses or procedures are good options for every person.
As every eye is different, your surgeon will advise you of the best possible option for your best possible vision.
